It seems to be no surprise that you have about 5 different spatulas, a slew of plastic containers missing lids and gadgets collecting dust. If you don’t you’re awesome! If you’re like the rest of us, read on!

Shed the Extras

Like I said before, a lot of us have a bunch of the same items. If you find that you have more than one spatula, for instance, why not separate with one or more? How often are you really going to need more than 2 anyway? The same goes for those damaged items like melted spoons or bent metal utensils. Toss what you’re no longer going to use and replace it with brand new items you’re sure to use. This kitchen utensil set has everything you need in one bundle!

Utilize Space

Using the storage space under your sink can be the best way to keep everything at-hand and organized. Pair down the items that you don’t need or use and utilize the space with bins or racks to declutter what you want to keep. Do you store your cleaning products, trash bags or other household items under there? Try a tension rod to hang spray bottles and plastic bins to store boxes and extra sponges!

Clear Counter Space

One of the easiest ways you can clear extra counter space is to simply store your dish drying rack under your sink when not in use. It opens up your counter for cooking and will make your kitchen look less cluttered instantly! Have a rack that’s too big? Try opting for a drying mat. They can be rolled up and stored after each use and can fit almost anywhere.

Appliance Pair Down

If you have appliances that you don’t use that often, but want to keep, try going for smaller sizes. You can easily find smaller, less bulky appliances such as blenders, mixers, food processors and can openers that can be stored in drawers.

Minimize Bags

A lot of us now use reusable bags. Depending on where you live, plastic bags are no longer being used, but if you do use them, take them back to the store for recycling. It’s a great way to reduce clutter and it’s better than tossing them in the trash. If you do choose to keep plastic bags, go for a bag holder.

Tame the Tupperware

It is inevitable that you’re going to have a missing lid at one point. Why hold onto the container if you don’t have the lid? Recycle miss-matched pieces. A great option would be to invest in plastic containers where the lid snaps to the bottom of the container when not in use. They’re at-hand, easy to find and you’ll reduce the amount of missing pieces.

Misc. Solutions

There are other great storage ideas to reduce the clutter in your kitchen including adding bins to your cupboards and refrigerator and finding functional storage solutions for your bakeware and pans. You can opt for a drawer knife set instead of a counter top version and even opt for an under-cabinet paper towel holder. There are a lot of great clutter solutions out there for just about everything.
